Details

Most apps need to communicate with servers to store and share data, and many of those apps do so through Restful APIs or realtime data services. In this month's meetup, our two speakers are going to show us two powerful tools to facilitate this communication. Martin Gontovnikas, author of Restangular, will demonstrate how the Restangular service provides easy, boilerplate-free REST API interaction. Jeff Cross from the Angular team will be presenting on a new module to facilitate realtime binding of Angular models with various Realtime APIs.

Please note that RSVPs will open 9/3.

Can't attend in person? We'll be livestreaming the main event (starting 6p PT) at http://youtube.com/user/angularjs/live , and the video will also be available a few days afterward.

Getting to the meetup by public transit (from Caltrain)

FROM THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION

Look for the Shoreline Shuttle stop (2nd bus shelter in outer circle, near entrance (http://goo.gl/maps/uQv61) <--use "Satellite" view to see best). You'll be riding in the reverse direction from most commuters, but the shuttle itself goes in a loop. Take the shuttle to stop #7 (Google) and get off at the corner of Charleston and Huff. You'll be a 2 minute walk from the meetup.

Here are the relevant stop times:

Leaving MTV Caltrain (note, pickup times are approximate)

5:06pm
5:27pm
5:46pm <--note, this arrives to Bldg 46 at approx 6:09p (after the first talk starts)

GETTING BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION
We'll have a shiny Google bus do a single run (about 7:15pm) to get everyone back to Caltrain in time to catch the 7:49pm Northbound train. The bus will leave from B46, right outside where the meetup is held.
